--- Comment #4 from C. M. Sperberg-McQueen <cmsmcq@blackmesatech.com>  2009-10-10 00:38:07 ---
In August and September 2009 the XML Schema working group performed
triage on the remaining open issues in a WBS poll [1], whose results
are summarized at [2] and accepted formally at [3]. In the course of
that triage we decided, with some regret, to close this issue without
further action.  We just aren't going to get this done in the time
available to us, and we do not believe the issue is critical enough to
warrant delaying the spec to address it.  

The ID in question is one in a system of short codes for different
kinds of components which are used pervasively in the editorial
production system; as the current maintainer of that system I have no
confidence whatsoever in my ability to find all the places where the
system exploits knowledge of the code 'ad', or knowledge of the fact
that element and attribute declarations each have a two-letter code,
etc.  So the change cannot be made without careful checking which
would take more time than we now have available.

Xan, as the originator, I ask that you consider whether you are
willing to live with this disposition or wish to push back against it.
If you can live with it, please indicate so by closing the bug report;
if you can't, please reopen it.  As usual, if we don't hear from you
in the next two weeks we will assume you are willing, however
reluctantly, to accept this disposition.
